Aquatic sports of ancient Hawaii

the world for ttie nerve and skill
which they rcqulre'of their devotees

officers and seimen of the cruiser

itnd other eveuts of equal Interest.
The events took place oft Walklkl

c&uds of spectators.
It would be Impossible to Imagine
n better day than thai which graced
the occasion. There was sufficient
l.ieeze to make the sailing races In
teresting, and enough surf for the
riders of the board.
too Serious Accidents
Though tliero was a large entry
(1st, and though the events wcic nil
well tilled, there was not an unto
ward accident to mar the daj's en
joyment. To bo sure, a canoe or two
capsized and plunged the crews Into
'lie water, but no one paid any at
tsntlon to such occurrences boond
submitting the unfortunate crews loVcje fraught with more danger of
merciless chaffing. laccldent than .tho foregoing events.
The closest coutestlof the da) was

Clever Work Saves Boat
In coming about, several of the ca
noes narrowly missed coming to
grief, but clever navigation brought
them all safely through and they
ttartcd on the home-stretch In fairly
good order1. ,
Tho danger was not over, however.
A great roller, which, In the excite
ment of rounding the flags had been
overlooked, came rushing down on
the racing craft. There was a cry
from the shore, but cither tho con
testants did not hear or had their
hands full, right Into the oncoming
sea tho frail crafts poked their heads.
Tho leading canoe rose on the
wave, remained poised In a hazard
ous situation for a couple of seconds.
and then passed safely out of tho
whirlpool, Tho second and third ca
noes also passed In safety, though
their outriggers were lifted high out
of tho water.

A very heady race was also, pad
dled by the boys of the Outrigger
Club, the winners of tho first event.
Thoy showed much generalship In
laying out their work, allowing their
opponents to exhaust themsolves nnd
then finishing with a burst of speed
which was a revelation to those un
acquainted with the possibilities of
the Hawaiian outrigger canoe.
Tho race between the four-paddla
canoes, for women contestants, was
fi aught with muck Interest. Only
half tho course was gone over, the
canoes going to the Hags which woro
placed off the leach below the Sea
side Hotel nnd racing to the end of
the Moana whnrf.
The women "oirsmcn" handled
their craft In n masterly way nnd
sent them through the waves In a
manner which evoked remarks of nd-
mliatlon from ,thc spectators. As
the treacherous breaker line was
reached, those' on uhoro held their
breath, but they need not lime wor
ried; tho women knew what they
were about and passed through the
danger zone safely.
An event of more than ordinary
Interest was (ho 'contest between

canoes, tho seamen knew all about

The surf-boat riding was very

crest of a wav. It was sent flying,
through a mis', of spray, shoreward.
There were narrow escapes galore,
but no mishaps, tthough several of
the crews took desperate chances.
The surf-bnattng in particular
seemed to take the fancy of the sail
ers. With a Hawaiian ileersman In
the stern each craft, to keep tho boat
from falling a victim to the hunger
of the waves, tho bluejackets were
carried through the breakers In style,
cheering madly as a particularly
heavy roller caught them and liter
ally threw them at the shore,
Tho surf-board riding also called
forth some exciting competition and,
an the winner of the contest finally
hit the sands of the beach, he was
gieeted with a round of cheers.
One of ,the features of tho day's
sport was tho remarkable good na
ture of tho contestants. Though the
victory in severnl events hung upon
a technical point, there was no dis
satisfaction with the decisions mani
fested and every announcement of
the Judgra was received with a smile.
